A Visit To Down Under

We had a 6D5N trip to Gold Coast & Tangalooma Island Australia recently.

Besides Movie World and Dream World, we'd many other unforgettable experiences.
We saw wild dolphin on the night we reached Tangalooma Island.

Used to receive kaola souvenirs from relatives. Now we finally have the chance to hug and touch a real kaola!
The first encounter with an emu.

We're lucky because there's a real platypus inside!

Patting a sheep after a sheep shearing show.

Crab & Oyster farm cruise began with Shrimp Catching...

What a big crab! (the fish was caught by her daddy)

"There's a whale!!"
An unforgettable whale watching experience! (It's not included in the tour package. We made special arrangement for it)

We opted not to go shopping but to spend an evening at the beautiful beach near our hotel.

Your kids are lucky to have such an experience, especially the close encounter with Aussie animals! This trip would definitely be a meaningful and unforgettable experience for everyone in the family!

Thanks for your compliment, Mr Citiding.
Australia is a clean and beautiful country. Even though it has strict custom rules on diary product etc., we can see that it's a well managed country.
My son said he can use a person to describe that country...that's his Headmaster --- Strict but Good.

Hi Joyful.Mum, you're right. It's wonderful to see and touch those Aussie animals. It's an educational and a very unforgettable trip! I even wrote an email to thank my tour agency, especially our wonderful & caring tour guide.

Hi Jo, welcome!

It's Golden Tourworld Travel (GTT). I'm happy with the itinerary. The food is good too. Steamboat dinner in Tangalooma Island,the rest of the dinners were Japanese food and Chinese food. Our tour guide is a Chris. He's professional.

In fact, I wrote an email to thank them for the job well done :-)
